i have a suspected hard drive issue with a windows xp system,
the system has alot of files and documents and programs that i need, i have made a backup of my files and documents,
i have a new hard drive that i will install xp onto, then load my backup onto it,
my problem is, i dont have the install cds for all the programs i use on the old hard drive, most importantly microsoft office package,
is there a way to transfer the programs over also?
i guess what im asking is.....is there a way to copy the entire contents of the drive to a new drive?.....including programs?
